Dah Sing Bank has hired HSBC to sell a new $150 million lower tier 2 subordinated offering. The deal will have a 10-year no-call five year maturity, and could be completed either later this week or early next week.
The borrower will hold individual meetings with investors throughout the week.
Obvious comparables for the new deal are its two existing subordinated transactions. Last year the bank sold a lower-tier 2 sub deal via Deutsche Bank due 2015, with a 2010 call option. That deal is currently trading at a bid offer spread of 67bp to 62bp over mid-swaps.
